Can I Get My Money Back After Investment Fraud?

Recovering Losses After Investment or Securities Fraud

As an investor, any financial losses can be devastating.  When those losses are related to fraud or misconduct, the wrongdoing should be held accountable.  Depending on the circumstances, a victim of investment misconduct might be entitled to financial compensation for losses suffered as the result of negligence, mismanagement, illegal conduct, or other forms of wrongdoing.

At Meyer Wilson, our securities lawyers can help determine if you have a valid claim for damages and who you may be able to hold liable for your losses. We will fight for you to hold these parties accountable for their wrongdoing and help you get the largest possible recovery based on the circumstances of your case. Contact our office today at (800) 738-1960 for a free consultation.

How Do I Recover Losses After Investment Fraud?

The best way to recover losses related to suspected fraud or misconduct is by retaining an experienced investment fraud lawyer. An attorney can help determine if you have a valid claim and assess your legal options for financial recovery.

Unfortunately, investment fraud and stockbroker misconduct are more prevalent than most people realize. It can cost an investor tens of thousands of dollars in an instant. These bad actors take advantage of unsuspecting investors who rely on their broker or financial advisor to act in their best interest. 

What Are the Types of Investment Fraud or Investment Misconduct?

There are several forms of investment fraud. It can be difficult to detect fraud or misconduct until there are actual losses from an investment or trade. It is important to remain diligent on all of your accounts, routinely checking for any signs of wrongdoing.

Common types of investment fraud or misconduct that may result in liability include:

  • Unsuitable recommendations
  • Unauthorized or excessive trading
  • Failure to supervise
  • Ponzi schemes
  • Overconcentration
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Misrepresentation and omissions of material facts
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Violation of state or federal securities laws

If you have suffered losses due to any form of suspected investment fraud or abuse, you might be entitled to financial recovery. When a broker, investment adviser, or financial institution engages in one of these acts, they need to be held responsible. 

Why Hire an Attorney?

Investment misconduct claims can be challenging to prove without the help of a qualified attorney. An attorney can review your case and determine the best course of action to get your money back. Brokers, investment advisers, and their employers may go to great lengths to cover up their wrongdoing and will aggressively defend themselves. You need a lawyer who will conduct a thorough investigation to ensure that all liable parties are held responsible.

Depending on your case, you may be able to recover money through arbitration before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) or another arbitration forum. FINRA arbitration is one of your best chances for recovering losses related to investment misconduct at the hands of a brokerage firm or broker. An experienced lawyer can help you understand your rights and how to pursue a claim.
